Welcome to KGMS!
The Kalamazoo Geological and Mineral Society (KGMS) is a friendly group of people that share an enthusiasm for geology. The purpose of the club is to further interest in gems, minerals, geology, paleontology, and the lapidary arts. Each KGMS member has their own unique interest but love sharing what they know with others. What ever your geological fascination you will find good company in the Kalamazoo Geological and Mineral Society. Become a KGMS member!
Each meeting we cover club business, usually have a presentation or two, maybe some show & tell, talk about any trips coming up and then adjourn. Kids are welcome and will have their own activities during the meeting.
Note - June 6, KGMS meeting is an ice cream social so there is no Kids Club but we hope families will celebrate with us and learn about Kids Club and KGMS future planning. New this year, Kids club will be held this summer on July 11th and August 1st; more on the KGMS Kids Club page 6:30 pm start time
